Heirloom Needlepoint Sampler

Needlepoint sampler. A gift from grandma to granddaughter…already done for Christmas.  This was dropped off in August and gets the “award” for being our first Christmas project of 2013. (Some people are such good planners.)

Our clients hopes that it will become a family heirloom. The needlepoint was blocked to bring it into square. (Because of the type of stitch used in needlepoint, they are normally parallelograms before blocking)  It was then pinned over acid free foamcore and framed in an olive wood veneer from Roma Moulding. We used Museum glass, which is a fabulous product that is coated to protect the artwork from fading and to eliminate reflections (so you can actually SEE your picture). We use a spacer to keep the glass from touching the needlepoint. All of these steps ensure that our framing does not damage the piece and increase longevity.



Come on in and we can help! Snap a couple of photos of where you plan to hang your project and grab a paint swatch if you want. We can help you with color selection and layouts and even provide an emailed layout if you like. We’ll make it look great in your room!

Our prices are very competitive and our finished product is second to none. We’ve been at this business for over 20 years and know all the tricks that allow us to turn out a product that will make your home, office, or business look great.
